Wow. I’m surprised. #MTL2017GYM problems.
Following an appeal by the Gymnastics Federation of Chile due to a problem with the structure of the competition floor that occurred during Men’s qualifications, the FIG Jury of Appeal has made the exceptional decision to allow Tomas Gonzalez (CHI) to participate in the Floor final.
During the second day of Men’s qualifications on Tuesday, October 3, a joining rail of the Floor’s structure moved out of place, causing instability on a small part of the floor.
Therefore, nine gymnasts instead of eight will participate in the Men’s Floor final on Saturday, October 7. Tomas Gonzalez will be the first to perform.
